Hours of Service Regulations

Q.: Select the correct statement below which applies to Hours of Service regulations:

A.: You may not drive for more than 11 hours following 10 consecutive hours off duty.

Explanation: You must take at least 10 consecutive hours of rest after being on duty for 14 hours, and during the 14 hour period no more than 11 hours are to be used as driving time. Some states, like California, allow for 12 hours of driving time (although California-based companies may require that drivers adhere to the 11-hour driving rule anyway).
